Why did you buy your Mercedes?

Just a silly poll, I'm sure most have several reasons for their choice, but which was the most important factor in making your decision?

I picked up SWMBO's 210 Wagon for less than half the going retail price. It met all of her automotive needs and exceeded mine, even though it was 10 years old.

Value for me.

The neighbors bought a riding lawnmower, so I had to upstage them--what was I thinking?

I couldn't stand having lots of extra cash around, so I bought a 2002 C230K. Problem solved!

Being German it's a no brainer. What better to advertise this than driving behind the three pointed star. VW and Audi are also OK but BMW is out of the question as that is Bavarian and not real German. I suppose it also helps that my family is from Mannheim and my Great grandfather knew Karl Benz.

I suppose it's just knowing that I'm driving the best of the best. That is any Merc built up to the late 80's anyway. I especially like my 300TD's truck like quality, it gos well with my MAN truck.

Fuel economy. 32+ MPG in a diesel versus ~12 MPG in my Land Cruiser. That and I got it "for the price of... on the house."
